  1. Summary

    These drabbles are a select few of my favourites from a couple of drabble challenges I used to take part in over on fanfiction.net — the E/O Drabble Challenge and the SPN100 Challenge. In both cases you were emailed a word every week and asked to write a 100 word drabble containing that word. While I always got the word of the week in, I very often went over my total word count!

    Summary

    “Happy anniversary,” Ed tells him. He’s got a smile, but he still seems nervous, and Stede absolutely cannot have that.

    He surges up into him, tugging him down into a ferocious kiss, unable to stop himself from automatically parting his lips and licking into him. Ed grins, his smile going from anxious to delighted; his hands grip Stede’s hips, draw him in. He’s eager in return, meets his kiss with enthusiasm, gives as good as he gets in tilting his head and meeting him beat for beat.

    They part, Stede peeling himself away so he can ask, desperately, “What— How long— S— What?”

    “We met two years ago today,” Ed tells him.

    “If you’d call that meeting,” Oluwande comments.

    “What else would you call it, then?” the Swede asks.

    “A living nightmare,” Izzy grumbles.

    “A naval attack,” Ivan answers, at the same time Roach replies, “A meet-cute.”

    “Disgusting?” Jim suggests.

    “Best day of my life,” Ed adds on top of it all, “Or one of ‘em, anyway.”

    Summary

    If this man lives— which Ed has no intention of allowing to happen— he could start a whole fresh horror story, could tour the seas telling this brand-new tale about Blackbeard’s specific brand of savage violence. This time, it would even be entirely fucking true.

    This time, it won’t be Izzy that kills a man for him, or the flames of a fire, or the blow of a fall. It won’t be committed from a distance, and it won’t be an experience-twice-removed, and it won’t be outsourced to somebody else. It won’t be an accident; it won’t be a legend; it won’t be a mistake, or an exaggeration, or just another myth that sailors tell each other for scares late at night.

    It won’t be a technicality that kills the man that killed Stede Bonnet. It’ll be Ed.

     
    or: ed and stede are ambushed, and ed thinks he sees stede die. he doesn't, of course, but ed doesn't know that.

    Summary

    Stede spreads his hands in front of him, and Louis and Alma both grin up at him. “Do you remember the stories I used to tell you about those fearsome pirates who lived out at sea? And, remember how I told you I went on adventures with Blackbeard? Well—”

    “Mom already told us you married Blackbeard,” Alma cuts him off, taking— Well, taking the wind right out of his sails, as it were.

    “Alma,” Mary hisses at her. “Don’t interrupt y—”

    “No, no, that’s fine, it’s— It’s fine, really,” Stede says. “I was— I was, admittedly, a little excited to tell you, but— That’s fine, honestly, we—”

    “No, no, do it anyway,” Mary encourages him.

     
    or: louis, alma, mary, and doug spend four days and three nights aboard the revenge, stede's families become one, and his entire heart combusts in the process.

    Summary

    It’s not like him to be so nervous. Stede thinks there’s likely more to it than Ed is acknowledging, perhaps even to himself. Which means it’s high time for a chat.

    “Now look,” Stede says. It’s important to keep the lines of communication open with one’s spouse. He’s learned that the hard way. “Before we meet them, I wanted to have a little conference. You know my motto. We talk it through –”

    “– as a crew, yeah, yeah,” Ed says, hurrying him along.
